Admissions . Tuition + Fees . Net Price Calculator 

Net Price Calculator

Using the Cleveland Institute of Art net price calculator, you can discover your eligibility for financial aid from CIA and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution.

Using the Net Price Calculator 

Completing the calculator should take no more than 20 minutes of your time. You will need to answer some basic questions about your parents' financial situation, so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.

When you're ready to begin, sign in with your College Board user name and password or use the calculator as a guest. If you sign in, the information you enter will be saved in your account, so you can use it again to calculate your net price at other colleges of interest. 

However, this calculator is limited since it does not include an assessment of your portfolio. Your portfolio is an important factor in your admission and your eligibility for merit-based scholarship assistance and other need-based assistance to attend the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Also, special circumstances are considered by the CIA Office of Financial Aid on a case-by-case basis. If your situation is unusual, you may want to contact the CIA Office of Financial Aid once you are admitted. Good luck!
